Still working

 

Overall other than just wear in tear the power supply is great.

Bought this power supply when I was upgrading to a new graphics card back in 2008 and it's still working away

After some time the fan started to make a whining noise, so I replaced the fan

Consumer review by:

Worked Perfect

 

Looking for a cheap mid watt PSU this is worth a shot. Can't say yet on the longevity, but so far so good.

Purchased for a customer that had a blown PSU in a big box retail chain purchased computer. Did the job and was easy to install

Lacks appropriate amount of SATA power connections ; No converter/adapter provided

Meh

 

I purchased this PSU in August 2012 and discovered today that my PC won't power on. I replaced the Coolmax power supply with a spare I had and the computer works again. I would expect just about any power supply to last more than a year and a half.

good price

fairly short life

Consumer review by:

Great

 

500w, all that is great but

for some reason mine did not come with a power cord...on top of taking a +week to arrive(all other parts came within 3-5 days) now have to wait for a power cord

Consumer review by:

plugged it up works great

 

cables could have been just a bit longer but it did reach all my drives. The price was good and did what I needed.

Boat Anchor

 

Transferred motherboard, processor, memory and HDD to a new box, installed this power supply and plugged it in. Something inside sparked, motherboard fried. NOT a good power supply. You get what you pay for.

Consumer review by:

Working good

 

Had everything I needed, Note would like 1 more Sata connector.

Consumer review by:

Works Great

 

Been using the power supply for a month and have had no problems with it. I would buy another Coolmax.

Consumer review by:

Works great. Very quiet. Good power.

 

Less than a month later the PSU is selling for two dollars less. Unfortunately, the website specified one SATA connector and four peripheral connectors. The device as received had two SATA connectors and three peripheral connectors.I was able to work...

Consumer review by:

Great

 

So I was going for a replacement after my old psu died thinking I would go cheap I picked this up with little expectations and could not be happier I have had this psu nearly two years and it still runs great very quite which is nice and is strong...
